Similar to how some players get moved up as they are physically ready, he looks to be mentally ready (and physicality appears to be no problem. The O is a big league.), and might learn more with 3ish years in the A, progressively moving up the depth chart, rather than going from what should be a superstar season next year and then into the A where his role would likely be drastically reduced and significantly different. It'll be interesting to see what he does in next year's TC. Could step into the pros, or he might be badly exposed as Marincin was this past TC, whereby it would certainly be no shame to see him light up the O again next season.
No rush. Having a 4th rounder perform like that is found money. We need some guys that will play in the AHL for a while.
